Married Capt. John Hintz, a captain of a recruiting unit in Des Moines got fired for sending and receiving racy emails with a local school superintendent, Dr. Nancy Sebring, there. Sebring resigned her position earlier this year as a result of her indiscretion and began a law suit to keep the emails and Hintz’ name from being made public. According to the Des Moines Register;
The personal correspondence came to light following public records requests by The Des Moines Register and Omaha World-Herald seeking information about Sebring’s sudden exit from the Des Moines district in May. She had accepted an offer to become leader of Omaha’s public schools, but then resigned from the Des Moines job earlier than scheduled.
Quoting from the Army Times, WHOTV writes;
Hintz has served in the Army for 14-years and is the recipient of the General MacArthur Leadership Award, the Army Commendation Medal with “V” and the Purple Heart.
There’s a longer story at the Army Times, but I don’t link to Gannett any more because they employ Tobias Naegele, the senior editor at Military Times who is a crybaby, cowardly, backstabbing POS.
I’m guessing that Hintz had service as an enlisted man before he became an officer, because there’s no way the Army would keep a captain around for 14 years otherwise. But thinking with your little head while in uniform is a really bad idea. Especially if you’re going to use government servers and email accounts to conduct your tryst. Hintz switched to a private email account about halfway through the affair, but it was too late, I suppose.
